Randy Couture at UFC 52Former UFC champion Randy Couture is living the good life these days.

He’s currently promoting the release of The Expendables 2, which hits theaters this Friday, and also recently had a starring role in a straight-to-video release action film calld Hijacked.

Long gone are Couture’s days in the Octagon, and he has no regrets walking away when he did, and according to the former two-weight class champion he conquered every goal he set for himself when he started fighting.

“No, I think everything I set out to do, I managed to pull off, and it has been an amazing journey for 15 years,” Couture said when speaking to G4TV’s Attack of the Show on Wednesday.

Since leaving the UFC, Couture has worked primarily on his acting career, most recently his role in the action series The Expendables. In the sequel set for release this week, Couture stars alongside several action stars including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Now the focus of most of Couture’s interviews these days revolve around what he’s up to these days in terms of his acting career, but the MMA legend doesn’t escape a few questions about his fighting past.

One of the most common questions has to be ‘is there any fight that would draw you back into the Octagon?’.

Well, leave it to Randy Couture to spice things up and throw out another action star’s name, who isn’t in The Expendables, but happens to be swirling around his old stomping ground in the UFC.

“Not unless (Steven) Seagal wants to sign up,” Couture answered with a smile and a laugh.

Seagal has become quite infamous in the MMA world over the last few years, appearing in the corner and training camps for several high profile fighters, most notably UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

While it’s highly unlikely Couture vs. Seagal will be happening any time soon in the UFC, it appears the real fighting legend is taking notice of the movie star stepping on his turf.
